When Falls Hurt the Most

/ Slip and Fall /

When Falls Hurt the MostROCHESTER, N.Y. – A slip and fall can happen almost anywhere, any time. In many cases, your injuries may not be your fault. In fact, most slip and falls can be prevented if people properly inspected and maintained their properties. Although most property owners understand the liabilities associated with hazards, these unnecessary injuries remain very common and expensive, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Recently, a Texas woman filed a claim of up to $1 million after she slipped in a local grocery store. According to the lawsuit, the woman was walking through the store when she slipped “on a substance that was on the floor.” The suit accuses the store of negligently failing to safeguard customers from hazards.

Rochester slip and fall attorneys at Cellino & Barnes say these companies can be on the hook for your medical bills and lost wages, if a court determines store managers were negligent.

“A slip and fall can be devastating for some people in Rochester,” slip and fall lawyer Ross Cellino said. “Victims constantly have to visit the doctor for therapy and check-ups and some may never recover from their injuries – obviously, all of this can be frustrating.”

In many cases, an injured person can recover past and future medical expenses by filing a claim but lawyers say sometimes that’s not enough.

“Some of these injuries can be life changing,” Cellino said. “It’s difficult for doctors to determine how well a person will recover from their injuries and exactly how long that will take, if they ever recover.”

Cellino says some victims may need to file a claim that includes pain, suffering or disfigurement. These claims could result in significant compensation for an injured person.

In any case, a consultation with a lawyer is free at Cellino & Barnes and victims of slip and fall injuries are urged to seek legal advice when attempting to recover monetary losses as the result of an accident.
